God’s angels cannot change the Gospel requirement Jesus set: “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned’” (Mark 16:15-16 NKJV). Paul wrote: “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8 NKJV). The Devil mis-represented Scripture to teach that an angel would keep Jesus from harm if He threw Himself off “the pinnacle of the temple” but Jesus replied “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the LORD your God’” (Matthew 4:5-7 KJV). We must always let God’s Word tell us what angels can and cannot do.
